Divine Beast Vah Rudania








Divine Beast Vah Rudania is one of the four Divine Beasts in Breath of the Wild. Vah Rudania serves as one of the four main dungeons in the game and has the shape of a salamander. The champion Daruk piloted Rudania. Link must defeat Fireblight Ganon in order to free the mechanical beast from malice.

Link must free Yunobo from a cave-in at the Abandoned North Mine. After doing this, and talking to Bludo, he must meet Yunobo at the Bridge of Eldin and defeat the Moblins bullying the young Goron.

This done, Link must shoot Yunobo, using the nearby cannon and a remote bomb, with Daruk's Protection making the latter resilient enough to take being used as a cannonball. They must then travel up Death Mountain, avoiding the sentries on the way - either Link or Yunobo being spotted triggers a massive eruption, forcing them backward - and periodically using more cannons to shoot Yunobo at Vah Rudania itself, until it retreats into the crater. Link then follows, landing at the entrance to the Divine Beast.
